From a press release:
“BYT Media today announces dates, location and initial talent for a thrilling new edition of their project: Death Becomes Us – A True Crime Festival – WASHINGTON D.C. EDITION. The multi day event is the second edition of the festival, which saw its premiere edition in Washington D.C. in 2018 and a Spring 2019 edition in New York City. The event is expected to attract upwards of 8000 attendees at Lisner Auditorium, November 8-10th, with warm up events and content leading up to it.
“The response to the inaugural D.C. edition was overwhelming, and so we are doubling up on festivals in 2019.” – says Jenn Tisdale, festival’s director – “The line-up will have some crossover with some of our favorite talent that spoke in Washington and New York previously, but our goal is to build a festival that is RIGHT for D.C. now.”
The initial talent announcement includes #1 true crime podcast in the country Murder Squad w/ Paul Holes and Billy Jensen, a live edition of Amanda Knox’s The Truth About True Crime (with a very special guest to be announced), a special true crime edition of Throwing Shade with Erin Gibson and Bryan Safi, as well as the return of some sold-out hits from the 2018 edition, including Buzzfeed Unsolved Live.
As always, expect more talent to be announced soon and festival surprises along the way: from the return of the Death Becomes Us pop-up bar to screenings, book events, happy hours, meet and greets and more.
